Researchers at Purdue University have, for the first time, discovered a visual method of tracking exactly how a drug is released into a cell. This discovery will aid in the creation of very specific drugs that are only delivered to targeted diseased cells. With current cancer drug side affects being almost as bad or worse than the symptoms, this discovery will no doubt improve many patients’ quality of life.
